Thank you to all the naysayers,
Who said it can’t be done by you,
That egged me to be the player,
And to lethargy, bid adieu!
I worked night long to ace the game,
Scanned the books, deciphered the codes
While they mocked, making ‘hall of fame’?
Hah! Your dry pearly episodes!
But did I break? Of course, I did,
And let those dark lachrymose tale
Wash down my sunken grim eyelids,
As they gave me the tag of frail.
I rewrote the old dynamics,
Wait folks! Not the end of the story,
Tweaked and redefined the tactics,
Yes! Better late than be sorry!
